    Going to use Quindos with the free offline license being offered right now. Can't find much online about it. Are the manuals good enough to get started?

    There was a webinar on 3rd April - you can contact [email protected] for more information.

    In terms of getting started via a manual, it depends if you've ever used anything like QUINDOS before. There is a (very) basic tutorial contained in the help files - listed under "Basic Course QUINDOS 7" which should give you a good introduction. The main thing to remember is that it is completely different to other metrology software - especially if you're coming from PC-Dmis. QUINDOS does not do any of the "hand holding" PC-Dmis does. It will not update nominal values or feature names if you make a change and it will let you do virtually anything - even if it is fundamentally wrong. The average CMM user is not even aware of some of the steps that are necessary with QUINDOS because other software packages handle them in the background automatically but, although frustrating at first, this can be an advantage and is one of the many things that makes QUINDOS such a powerful software. You have full control over what QUINDOS does, when it does it and how it does it at all times. It will be a steep learning curve but if you persevere, it will make you a much better metrologist and CMM programmer.

      neil.challinor - measuremax was resident inside of VB6... The software was basically an add-on for VB

      In that case, you'll probably love QUINDOS.

      Back in the early 2000's I program a CMM Endeavor with Measure Max+. I am enjoying given this Quindos a try. With Quindos I have being able to get a cad model imported. Next I need to find out how to create the probe tools. I haven't look at any manuals or tutorial yet.

        Looks like I'm not the only one giving Quindos a try. Who knows we might even consider it for our next automated cell coming up soon.

      Good luck!

      I am learning Quindos. It is a cool software but VERY different from PC DMIS.

      Quindos does NOTHING for you. There are a lot more steps to get from A-Z but along the way you have some really powerful things at your disposal. Reach out if anyone has any questions, I'll do my best to help out.
